Meta signals the end of the road for Workplace – Computerworld

Meta has been quiet on Workplace for a while, said Beth Schultz, vice president of research and principal analyst at Metrigy. “So from that respect, the writing was on the wall, so to speak, especially considering the full-out effort the company is making on AI and metaverse initiatives,” she said.

Meta provided the following timeline for migration away from Workplace, according to a post on the Workplace admin site:

  • Until Aug. 31, 2025, users will be able to continue using Workplace as usual.
  • Sept. 1, 2025 to May 31, 2026: Workplace will only be accessible to read and download existing data.
  • June 1, 2026: User access will be terminated and a user’s Workplace will be deleted.

 “We understand that this decision will be disruptive to the businesses, organizations and partners that rely on Workplace every day,” Meta said. “Our priority is to make the transition as smooth as we can.”

Workplace customers are being encouraged to migrate to “preferred partner” Workvivo — the employee experience app acquired by Zoom last year. 

“It’s our top priority to support customers through this transition, and our team is working to make this process as frictionless as possible,” John Goulding, Workvivo CEO and founder, said in a statement Tuesday. “We put our customers first, and this will be no different for the Workplace from Meta customers.”

On the upside, said Schultz, Meta seems to have given customers a good amount of time to migrate, “although it’s not clear how much, if any, help they’ll provide in the process.”
